FITZPATRICK'S LATE PASS A WINNER IN CANADA

VERNON, B.C., Canada (July 15, 2007) -- J.R. Fitzpatrick passed Scott Steckly as they raced out of the last corner on the last lap to win the Dodge Avenger 300 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race at Sunvalley Speedway today.

Fitzpatrick's margin of victory was a scant .029 of a second. His winning move around Steckly was the 13th lead change of the 300-lap race.

Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for the Series and has been for many years. The most popular stock car series in Canada makes special demands on tires, given the intense competition and the beating each track takes during the winter.

Steckly finished second, followed by Peter Gibbons, Kerry Micks and D.J. Kennington. Don Thomson Jr. won the pole with a lap averaging 98.366 around the half-mile track.
